White Pride in Harrison

ovksetigjnihtybmbawl

In a small, mostly white populated town of Harrison, Arkansas, a billboard stands, courtesy of none other than the KKK. It’s not too surprising when you consider that the area has a reputation of being one of the most hate-filled downs in existence filled to the brim of hate groups. So, seeing a KKK billboard that states that “it’s not racist to love your people” is like putting vanilla icing on the pile of shit. Hate groups, as of late, are trying desperately to change their image as opposed to doing something much substantial like – I dunno – change their ideologies, practices and overall views on race, especially nonwhites.

Typically, they see hating on nonwhites means loving whites. They are most likely the same people who believe that helping blacks and browns in some way means taking away from whites. They may also believe that to be anti-racist is equal to being anti-white. In short, they follow a formula that suggests that if one group gets help, another group suffers. When it comes to many white people, they think helping nonwhites in anyway is detrimental to white people. Thus, they conclude that they are the new “victims” or racism.

As far as the good white Christian folk of Harrison goes, they’re following in the bootstraps of hate groups by living on the one formula that not only survived all these years, but have influenced more and more whites to uphold the equation. White pride and white love would have to come from the hatred of nonwhites, or vice versa.

In my opinion, it’s nothing short of pathological, not to mention stupid, to believe that to love oneself or his/her group means you have to be a hater of others. Usually, that hints there’s a shallow kind of admiration for the group you supposedly have pride for. In other words, what’s so great about being white that you have to, or want to, hate nonwhites?

There’s nothing wrong with being what you are, and that includes white people. Everyone should love what they are. The problem with the people in Harrison, Arkansas and in hate groups all across the nation is that their “pride” came from hatred. That is not true love, especially when you have hatred. If anything, it shows that those who commit themselves to the myth that somehow being white is to be superior above all people, are hiding their own individual inadequacies.

Those so-called white supremacists have nothing to show for their own. No achievements to speak of. No accolades to be proud of. Nothing notable. So, they latch on the accomplishments, both real and fictional, of other whites, also both real and fictional, and assume that just because they share the same skin color, that means they are the superior species.

What I find strange is that even those the white male power structure exists, those hate groups still think that white people are oppressed. Somehow they think that said power structure is occupied by Jews, and somehow they’re different than whites. Does that make sense?

Again, there’s nothing wrong with being white. There is a problem with thinking that such pride comes at a price of stepping on other races. If that’s the case, there’s nothing to be proud of when you’re a hater.

  1. It’s the very same crap they recycle in cyberspace. Now this white supremacist junk is mainstream, thanks to right wing media, conservatives, GOP, Democrats, and so-call white liberal allies. They refused to own up their racist, white supremacist views and ideology. They blame everything on us POC while they pretend to be blameless.

    White supremacy is a plague upon the earth!

  2. When Black people love on themselves you don’t get violence. You get a good time. No one has been killed or injured via Black pride/Love/or anything else.

    When white people love on themselves you get the Holocaust, the Klan, Native American extinction and any number of atrocities. The reason why white folks don’t want Black folks to love each other is twofold… (1)their actions when the have white pride is what they think Black folks would do with Black pride. They can’t consider outside their selves, because they don’t consider other folks “people.” And (2) we would exclude them because they are so filthy.

    There is a difference

  4. Preservation of one’s own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures. Cesar Chavez

    Multicultural families are set upon by White, Black, Latino, and Asian races. All racism must be confronted as it is the real terrorism in this nation where we must all become EQUAL.

    When we are really honest with ourselves we must admit our lives are all that really belong to us. So it is how we use our lives that determines the kind of men we are. Cesar Chavez

    Great read Brotha Wolf

  5. *Standing ovation.*

    George Wallace once went to the rural area of Alabama (I believe) to met with the locals, who were White, to get their needs met. He quickly found out that their attitude was, “We don’t care if we do not have roads, schools, hospitals, indoor plumbing, a full set of teeth, etc. We just want to know that we are better than the Blacks.”

    Evidently, this type of mentality is still around. When it comes to racism, there isn’t a damn thing that has changed except the weather.

  6. Slow clap, leading to a crescendo for this insightful nail-on-the-head post ‘Wolf! It never ceases to amaze me how these “race lovers” like to latch onto inventions/claims they neveR had any stake in (let alone full knowledge of) whatsoever-but as Mickey said their attitude is reflected in their stupid actions via the assertion that “We don’t care if we do not have roads, schools, hospitals, indoor plumbing, a full set of teeth, etc. We just want to know that we are better than the Blacks”, what a farce! And as for the pix of the girl with her cuddly lil’ puppy on that billboard, they aren’t foolin’ anybody with half a brain with that photo-I just can’t with all their desperate, and pathetic attempts to look civilized!
